Freeze-Dried Kefir Starter 5 5 3 3
I love kefir! I had never even heard of kefir until I read a blog about it a month ago. I love the taste ( I made berry smoothies and chocolate smoothies) and the fact that there are so many probiotics in it. It's a little bit of a pain to have to keep making it every other day or so, but it is worth the effort. This is also the most reasonable price I have found for kefir starter anywhere. June 11, 2013
Works great, effortless. This product is easy to add and obtain the product I wished to get. Service was great, priced best I could find, and it works as claimed. Can't get any better than that! April 10, 2013
Digestion churner! The taste grows on you and the benefits are well worth the effort. You can keep making more from the same batch up to 5 or 6 times. The yeast and bacterial cultures produced in the kefir really do aid my digestion processes. July 2, 2012
